1948 to 1952 Dude Ranch Days

Excerpt from the Diamond Belle Vintage Brochure…

“The Diamond Belle Ranch is located high in the rolling hills of Okanogan County, Washington.  It lies in the heart of the cattle country, twenty-six miles east of Tonasket, the state’s chief beef shipping town.

Enjoy sunny days and cool nights at 4300 feet elevation.

The center of activity is the Lodge in which are located the dining room and lounge.  Evenings around the huge stone fireplace are never-to-be-forgotten memories.  Cards and dancing for those who prefer them…”


People drove 12 hours from Seattle to spend a week watching the ranch work and enjoying nature.  Hunters arrived in the fall.  The ranch operation was a success

Diamond Bell Ranch Rates circa 1950


The Dude Ranch operated until 1952 when a sudden family illness regretfully required the sale.

Reportedly, the ranch was bought for $1,800 and sold for $50,000.
